The small city of Waukesha, Wisconsin, is in the Milwaukee metro area and provides a picturesque setting on the Fox River. This location, along with a historic downtown area that features shops, restaurants, art galleries, wineries, and boutiques, makes this a wonderful place for retirement.

Waukesha has more than 50 parks with miles of walking and biking paths, as well as two major hospitals within city limits (ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital and Ascension Wisconsin Hospital – Waukesha). It’s also a safe place for older adults. According to Sperling’s Best Places, Waukesha’s violent crime and property crime rates are significantly below the national average.

According to the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey, Waukesha residents pay an average of $5,324 a month for assisted living services. The nearest large city, Racine, has comparable rates of $5,450, but nearby Sheboygan averages $4,625 a month for assisted living. The latter aligns with the average assisted living cost in Wisconsin and nationwide.

Note: Data for Waukesha was unavailable, so data for the nearest city, Milwaukee, was used instead.
